With the introduction of the carbon tax and electricity prices expecting to double by 2015, Australian Hospitals and Health Centres are looking for ways to reduce their energy costs. One solution that has been in common use in Europe and the US for decades is building envelope air barrier evaluation and retrofitting. A building envelope airtightness evaluation and retrofitting can create substantial energy savings, as well as improve comfort levels and air quality. Air infiltration has been identified as one of the leading causes of cross flow contamination of disease between hospital wards. The chance of this occurring can be reduced with an Air Barrier Commercial building envelope airtightness evaluation and retrofit.
